FRENCH PRINCESS GIRL’S BEDROOM

Bonjour and Welcome to Meikasa

My Daughter’s Kara-Love charming personality inspired me to create a room that’s dainty and glamorous. Every little girl deserves a bed fit for a princess. Immediately after finding this bed at RoomsToGo I knew it was the perfect statement piece for her room. The original color of the bed wasn’t exactly what I envisioned but I didn’t let that stop me. I easily refinished the frame in a metallic gold which made this bed even more dreamy.

My love for vintage French Provincial furniture runs deep so I knew I wanted to incorporate classic French pieces to her room. I started with this darling dresser that I was lucky to find at our local Goodwill store and I painted it ‘Coral Gables’ by Benjamin Moore. Along with that the baroque frame that was in impeccable shape that I transformed into a bow holder.

To complete the overall majestic feel in this space I chose a grand chandelier that was also a lucky thrifted item and refinished in metallic gold.

This seating area was designed with tea parties in mind! I incorporated this French linen

painted side table paired with ottomans and this is where my little girls dreams come true.

To make this space even more magical , I added a blush Christmas tree and all the trimmings for

the holiday season. She loves decorating the tree with her favorite ornaments and twinkle

lights.

Pretty Peonies Girl's Bedroom

Welcome to peony heaven!

I went with an unconventional colour for my third daughters bedroom. It's called Misty by Sherwin Williams. It's a soft blue/grey yet it still exudes a feminine feel. 

The focal wall was missing something and these lovely, delicate peony wall decals from Rocky Mountain Decals were the perfect touch! I love the fact that they're removable & reusable!

The headboard was another lucky Homesense find. I loved the shape and the tufting.  The butterfly duvet cover is fresh yet whimsical.  All the pillows are from Homesense except the silver bow – its from Hobby Lobby.

This room is not as big so using a mirrored nightstand gives the illusion of a grand space.

Nightstand/lamp/swan/floowers: Homesense

Knot pillows/rope: Juju & Jake

I thought it was important to bring the element of fairytales into their closets/dressing rooms. I used pink sparkly knobs to dress up the drawers and I added shelves to display their shoes/skirts/pictures.

Floral Girl's Room Reveal with Little Crown Interiors

Every now and then, I’ll be working on a design for a nursery or kid’s room and I’ll think to myself, “I wish I could have this room for myself!”  This was certainly the case for one of my recent clients who had a 7-year-old girl’s room she wanted me to design.  She wanted the space to be fresh and breezy with a few key elements: a wallpaper accent wall, a dreamcatcher and a cozy corner nook with a canopy.  All things that I love!

I started by choosing the wallpaper which became the centerpiece for the entire design.  I chose the Blush Floral Wallpaper by Anewall.  The large-scale floral pattern is so stunning, but the colors are soft enough that it’s still quite versatile.

Next, I chose the furniture. My client wanted the furniture to be high quality with a feminine design, so I went with one of my favorite local brands, Newport Cottages.  I love Newport Cottages because they allow for a lot of customization.  This night stand and desk were both custom-sized, and I sent in this pretty coral fabric to be upholstered on the headboard.

The one thing that my client’s daughter really wanted in her space was a dreamcatcher.  We had a nice open wall above her desk, and I thought that was the perfect spot.  I love working with smaller independent vendors, so I went first to Bright Star and Buffalo who collaborates with SpokeWoven on very unique dreamcatchers.  The piece has such an ethereal feel, and the brass accents are all hand-forged (and so pretty in person).

We finished off the space with a little reading nook and some floor pillows to give her a special place to snuggle.  The space has everything a little girl could ask for and is transitional enough that it will last her for years to come!
